DURHAM, N.C. – Head coach Jolene Nagel and the Duke volleyball program are pleased to announce the addition of Andie Shelton to the 2018 Blue Devil roster. A graduate student transfer from the University of Pacific, Shelton is a setter/outside hitter who has one year of eligibility remaining.
“The addition of Andie Shelton to our 2018 team gives us a talented and experienced setter who is also an offensive threat,” said head coach Jolene Nagel. “We’re delighted to have someone with her talent, experience and maturity join our program. Andie is a team player with a team mentality that everyone loves to be around. Her athleticism, skill and high volleyball IQ will be a positive impact.”
After earning 2014 West Coast Conference Freshman Team honors, Shelton did not see game action during the 2015 season. She returned to the floor as a redshirt sophomore in 2016 and was the Tigers’ best setter, averaging a team-best 7.48 assists per set.
As one of only two two-position players in the WCC in 2017, Shelton garnered All-WCC Honorable Mentions accolades. In addition to seeing time at setter, Shelton also saw action at outside hitter and averaged 5.12 assists, 2.73 digs, 2.30 kills and 0.82 blocks per set in conference play while also totaling 21 service aces.
Shelton and her fellow Blue Devils begin official preseason preparations in August with the season opener set for a 7:30 p.m., first serve August 24 against BYU at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
